DTM champion Wittmann gets Toro Rosso test
19 October 2014 – Marco Wittmann will receive a Formula 1 test with Toro Rosso as his reward from BMW for winning this year's DTM championship.
The 24-year-old, twice a runner-up in the Formula 3 Euro Series, won four races on his way to securing a maiden DTM title in only his second year in the category.
"Marco has an extraordinary season behind him, in which he has given BMW Motorsport an awful lot of pleasure," said BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt.
"It is now our turn to reward him for his efforts. For this reason, BMW has come up with something very special. I am delighted that we can also make his childhood dream come true with the Formula 1 test.
"Thanks to the relationship we enjoy with our premium partner Red Bull, it was possible for us to organise a test drive in the Toro Rosso."
BMW also confirmed that Wittmann will return to DTM next season to defend his title.
